Last night we played Vindication for the first time. It is such an interesting game, with a very unique setup and story. You start off as a wretched human being. Immoral, corrupt, and thrown overboard by your shipmates, you wash up on an island and try to slowly redeem yourself. The person with the most “honor” at the end wins the game. It has some elements of area control and worker placement mechanics, but with enough of a twist to keep it interesting. And the artwork is gorgeous. Highly recommended.
